Life Castings Get Creative Coatings
Creative Coatings, innovative masters of cold metal spray finishes from Lincolnshire, and Rockabelly Lifecasts, the award-winning body casting company from Kent, are collaborating on projects which look to add something new to interior design.
For ten years, Rockabelly Lifecasts has been creating unusual bespoke items for interiors and exteriors that use moulds of the human body as inspiration. Until now, Rockabelly’s clients have had to choose between a range of traditional materials such as solid bronze or electroplated metals, which often proved risky and expensive.
Now, a creative partnership has been struck between the two companies and using Creative Coatings’ cold metal spray, Rockabelly has been able to create realistic and affordable bespoke art items that have the wow factor of real metal without busting the budgets of their clients.
Creative coatings can offer an exciting, tried and tested, cost-effective range of metal finishes for all your design ideas. They offer a sprayable metal surface, which consists of up to 95% metal and feels, looks and ages like real metal. It can be applied to almost any surface material – from plaster to plastic, MDF to ceramics with a similar visual and tactile result to cast metal. Some options can even be patinated like real metal to simulate an antique effect or verdigris patina. They also offer sprayable high gloss finishes in any colour and a leather-look finish.
As well as bespoke art and interior items such as those created in partnership with Rockabelly Lifecasts, Creative Coatings can also cover large surface areas such as floors and walls, or large architectural items such as pillars and plinths to give any room a vibrant, expensive-looking finish at a fraction of the price of cast metals.
‘Every project inspires us and we always strive to meet every challenge,’ says James Fowler, Uk Sales Manager for Creative Coatings. ‘We have over 85 year’s knowledge in the spraying industry, and we love working with creative people to make their ideas come to fruition’
‘Working with the stunningly beautiful metal finish options from Creative Coatings has opened up whole new creative worlds to us and our customers,’ says CJ Munn, proprietor of Rockabelly Lifecasts. ‘I have been looking for a reliable product like this for so many years, and have tried and tested all of their competition but nothing else has come close. The team at Creative Coatings has worked hard to make my clients’ dreams a reality, and they not only have the precision and reliability of the experienced technicians they are, but also the passion and imagination of artists. It is rare to find a service provider that can think like an artist or designer and therefore understand what we require and the unique pressures of the design industry, always hitting deadlines and budgets without faltering. The product itself is supremely beautiful and my clients not only marvel at its luxurious lustre but cannot resist handling and caressing every surface of the sculptures I have had coated in metal.’
Working closely with interior designers, architects, Artists, shop fitters and contractors Creative Coatings ensure that the design is never compromised and that always provide the expertise and knowledge required to deliver truly outstanding results.
Just to say thanks so much for doing such a great (and efficient) job with the study table.
I am SO pleased with the result and think it looks even better than before!
